    Hi.
    Can anyone explain me the recent trends in string theory with the
    reference of the main papers? (last mounths)
    Thanks a lot!
    Bye

    You don't get an answer because your question is far too vague and
    unspecific. It's like asking 'what are the recent trends in literature
    point me to good books'. Ask concrete questions and you will get
    answers. Meanwhile have a look at http://www.arxiv.org and then
    hep-th.

    I don't think that the question What are the main trends in a scientific
    field in the last couple of months is a vague question.

    Let us hope that string theory has not yet degenerated to the level of
    literature and that it has not yet adopted its (lit crit) methods to
    judge the value of ideas.

    The last couple of months have not created any major trends that everyone
    would find extraordinarily powerful but people continue to work on trends
    that have been hot for two years or so, such as the higher order
    corrections to black hole entropy, relations to topological strings, flux
    vacua, landscape, swampland, general predictions of string theory, as well
    as 3-year-old trends such as integrability in AdS/CFT + Bethe Ansaetze and
    many others.

    If you ask at a better moment, you may get a more focused and exciting
    answer. In that case, it is likely that you get the answer before you ask
    the question. ;-)

    Best wishes
    LM

    Can't we get Alan Sokal to test this for us? (-;
